I have been to FELIDIA a few times in the "old days" when Lidia would roam the dining room and chat with diners. She is lovely! The food is fantastic, and the ambiance is warm and welcoming - just like a trip to Italy. Well worth a visit!
Now Lidia is a celebrity chef and has multiple restaurants including ESCA
And DEL POSTO
Lidia has a few cookbooks, but this is the best. You can buy a copy HERE
A few of my favorite recipes from Lidia include SHRIMP SCAMPI
ZITI with sausage and fennel
And my latest discovery of the Bastianich Clan? They produce the best wine. Really. To die for. You can read about the wine selection HERE. So far I have only sampled the Friulano.
And am now on the hunt for the Rosato which is perfect for the warmer weather around the corner
And the Sauvignon Blanc which is my favorite white
